Australian equestrian banned from Tokyo Olympics over doping

The Australian Olympic Committee says show jumper Jamie Kermond has been removed from the equestrian team for the Tokyo Games after testing positive for cocaine

Equestrian Australia had earlier said Kermond returned a positive A-sample for a metabolite of cocaine following a test conducted by Sport Integrity Australia on June 26.

The Australian Olympic Team’s chef de mission Ian Chesterman announced later Wednesday that Kermond’s place in the Australian team had been terminated.
